CINCINNATI -- As much as we love Greater Cincinnati here at WCPO, we know our community faces challenges.

Fortunately, there are scores of people here who are working to address those challenges head-on and make the region a better place to live, work and play for all of us.

This month, as part of WCPO’s newly launched Next Nine series, we’re recognizing nine standout community leaders who are making a difference through their efforts.

We have honorees that are just starting their careers and others who have launched second careers because they saw a need and had the drive to try to meet that need.

WCPO will honor these local standouts at a happy hour reception on Nov. 29 at The Backstage Event Center downtown. The event is sold out.
